YU Event / Emerging Urbanists in Scotland
February 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Academy of Urbanism + Young Urbanists
Special ‘Emerging Urbanist’ Careers Event and ‘Urbanism’ Book Launch
You are invited to join with the Young Urbanists, a growing network of students and young professionals in Scotland, part of a wider multi-professional grouping of The Academy of Urbanism. Hosted in partnership with the Urban Design Group and the Glasgow School of Art’s Urban Lab, our special event combines a series of presentations from ‘Emerging Urbanists in Scotland’ exploring the various career paths some have taken in the world of urbanism.
Our panel of urbanists have each had different career trajectories with diverse influences and choices, which they will articulate in rapid-fire, pecha-kucha style presentations.
- Kirsty Macari AoU, Angus Council, the Academy’s newest Academician
- Francis Newton AoU, Urban Design Practitioner at the City of Edinburgh Council
- Tierney Lovell YU, Urban Designer
- Susie Stirling AoU, Head of Placemaking and Housing at The Scottish Government
There will also be an introduction to The Academy of Urbanism and the Young Urbanists from Young Urbanist Coordinator, Bright Pryde-Saha.
